Cyber-Threat Proliferation: Today's Truly Pervasive Global Epidemic
May/June 2010 (vol. 8 no. 3)
pp. 70-73
Tom Kellerman, CoreSecurity
During the past year, people around the globe have been captivated—and in some cases, paralyzed—by concerns regarding the spread of the H1N1 flu virus (also known as the swine flu). The powerful strain proves that infectious disease can circumvent the many types of borders we've established in architecting our respective societies. Simultaneously, despite the fact that the virus has affected millions of people, sometimes lethally, it's fair to say that its pervasiveness and implications pale in size and impact when compared to the current global cyber-threat epidemic.
